Is transition planning on the horizon for your farm, but you are not sure where to start? Farm Management has you covered with their new website dedicated 100% to all things farm transition planning.

In this episode, we are excited to chat with Heather and promote their new tool, which we feel pulls together information, tools, and resources nicely into one location. This is a huge win for farmers.

Join Tracy and Heather as they chat about:
  • Why they launched the website?
  • What tools and resources can be found on the website?
  • Heather speaks to the website's intuitive layout and explains how it is mapped out into stages based on where someone is at on their farm transition journey.
  • Where do advisors fit in, and how can farmers find them?
  • What tools are available to help us?

So many farmers stop before they get started because this process can seem vastly overwhelming. Paralysis no more!!!
